Real Madrid announced this Sunday that fans will have the opportunity to bid for first-team players’ match-worn shirts from the six remaining home fixtures of the league season.
The project, in collaboration with MatchWornShirt, will begin on Sunday along with the resumption of LaLiga Santander at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, and will give fans of Los Blancos the chance to get their hands on the shirts worn by players in the season’s remaining home games.
Fans from all over the world will have the opportunity to bid during the game for the shirt being used by each Real Madrid player in the remaining six home games.
“The funds raised in these auctions will go towards maintaining the Real Madrid Foundation’s social sporting projects, which help to alleviate the devastating social impact of the pandemic, in collaboration with the main NGOs and socio-educational entities in the world,” the club said in a statement.
“It is a dynamic process that closes four days after the end of the match. The objective is to allow fans from all over the world to participate, since due to the time zones of each continent many watch the matches delayed.
“Buying the shirt the player wears during the game does not pose any health risk. MatchWornShirt removes traces of bacteria and DNA without damaging the fabric. Unique treatment technology also ensures the preservation of mud and grass stains and other elements from the game,” assured Real Madrid.
Los Blancos will come up against Eibar, Valencia, Mallorca, Getafe, Alaves and Villarreal at home before the end of the campaign.
